how much can you fit into a Friday?

After a brief (and much needed) nap it was time for the art car meet up and dining al fresco at “living arts” artspace. Chef Alex provided a suptous din of roasted corn, grilled kale and romaine salad, cinnamon jerk drumsticks, grilled sweet potato wedges. We traded a recipe or two before Natali showed us what else could be done with shrimp (her “live shrimp” puppet show) creatively addressed both BP oil spill and the death of a loved one. A double feature followed and since the drive in had burnt down, we parked the art cars in the lot, faced the “screen” and enjoyed “Rat fink” and “Automorphosis.” I had seen the later a few times (having 2 small features in it) but hadn’t seen the film on Ed Roth before. Wonderfully done with photos, cartoons, live footage it was a great revisitation of vague childhood memories. Ed Roth was one of the very 1st to create hotrods (0ut of model T’s) and build an empire of graphics, model cars, stickers, t-shirts etc. in the 1950’s. Not sure if Netflix has it but, well worth the time.
